Agreed with the Breakpoint public, this didn't deserved to win the compo.

The real winner - too bad that it does not work with WinUAE.

One of the best amiga demos in a long time; this impressed above and beyond. Let's hope Kiero continues to churn out stuff like this to give TBL some competition for the crown.

Deserved to win IMO.

WinUAE JIT FPU seems to be broken, it works without JIT, but very very slowly (obviously).

Under WinUAE 1.4.6, Kickstart 3.1, it just says 'Can't open version 0 of datatypes.library'. Well, the lib is there, what's wrong, any ideas?

Great demo! I saw on the stream and fell in love with it.

I cant get it running on my native hardware (screw emulators ;) ). I get a guru. What is the hardware specs on this? I got a normal A1200 / 060@80mhz (yes 80) running with OS3.1 .. all other prods from breakpoint works. Any clues? How much mem is needed.

It looks pretty much like a TBL clone, beides that a few of the effects could have been faster if a different technique would have been used. But i liked it anyways.

Great Scenes/atmosphere, great graphics/postprocessing, great sound, a couple of nice demo-effects - all this combined and you have a great demo!

As mentioned above the framerate was somewhat low - let that be an encouragement rather than critisism.

You made the Amiga demo compo-feeling go from "nice" to "great" with your demo this year!

what have the world come to, when the amigaguys go epic 3d flyby and the pc guys go stylish disco demos in the tradition of polka brothers and so on :)?

anyway since I'm a TBL fanboy, I obviously condone stuff like this - fight fancy showoffs with fancy showoffing!

As regards to the "dont vote for the usual guys"-campaign, I found it highly entertaining, but maybe not strategically so wise.. it might have backfired :)

Ok, after trying 4 times to get this one running on my A4k without any success I might say, according to azzaro, our demo might look like shit compared to yours but at least we see something! :)

Jokes aside, what does this thing need to run? So far I tried booting w/o startup-sequence etc. but still, no success. Just black screen and music. Just in case, my config is A4000/060, 80MB fast.

@StingRay: this is kind of weird problem so I will need more information. first of all, do you have any gfx card in a system? second, did you run setpatch when booting without s-s? which os version/kickstart you have? you can mail kiero (wozniak_m[at]interia.pl) personaly so it will be faster to figure things out
added on the 2008-03-27 20:15:16 by ubik ubik
Ubik: thanks for the fast reply but I finally got it running. ;) When I wrote I tried w/o startup-sequence I actually meant booting straight into shell with cgx monitor driver loaded etc. Now the last thing I tried was really booting w/o startup-sequence, just setpatch and adddatatypes refresh and lo'n'behold, it worked then! :)

The metaballs and sphere with light don't fit very well with the theme but it doesn't matter because I like it and run damn fast and smoothly... the human-tree is great! I prefer this cinematic style to Mawi's horror-vacuum that filled the screen with too many elements in some productions.

It would be nice if Kiero could add different pixel configurations (like 2x1 and 2x2) for slower cpus (like 040 or maybe people who prefer smoothness over detail) . And also high-res support for fast emulators.

Well deserved victory, if you can call it that - it's hard to fight against an anniversary of a much beloved group.
I liked the feel of this demo, although it's a bit hard for me to understand if there was a real story, or just random moments of despair and darkness. My favourite scenes were the gold plated paper and the tree of people - nice ones there.
The music is fitting and is very good to begin with - however, it fades a bit in the end.
Overall, the best Amiga demo at Breakpoint 2008, which probably makes this the best Amiga demo of 2008. ;)

Elude style: slow but impressive (especially the end part)!

Seems I be owing Elude some thumbs ;)
Fantastic mood in this demo. Music is epic like only Chaser can make it. Disturbing visuals bind together in a really nice way.
Remember this on the big screen, made an impression indeed.

Amazing demo! Pacing is a bit odd at times.
